As the Covid-19 vaccination program rolls out over the course of 2021, meeting planners might be considering vaccination requirements for their in-person attendees. Is that legal?
Recently, Special Events sister publication MeetingsNet asked attorney Joshua Grimes of Grimes Law Offices, LLC, a specialist in the meetings and convention industry, to weigh in on the issue. From a legal standpoint, according to Grimes, asking for proof of a COVID vaccination or for a negative COVID test to participate in an in-person event is allowed and justifiable. But, he says, it does raise questions and issues that planners need to consider.
